Thumbs up [Resolved] MX Player support for Android 4.4.3

Hi,

According to AndroidPolice and other sources (sorry, can't link), Android 4.4.3 is coming.

Will MX Player work on this version or is an update necessary?

Thanks!

Sure, no reason why it should not work. MX Player requires Android 2.1 and above...

I can't add a link because I'm a new user, but there was a relatively long delay (more than a week if I understand correctly) until Android 4.4.1 and 4.4.2 support was added when they were released. Users got a dialog saying "Unsupported android version" and MX Player wouldn't load. Only when MX Player v1.7.21 was released it started working again.

You can Google "mx player unsupported android version" for references.

I just want to know the current version already supports Android 4.4.3 or is it going to show the same error.

Actually that was not a version issue but an incompatibility issue with Android internal module.
MX Player uses many Android private modules to improve playback performance.
Sometimes this private modules changes and then this message will be showed up.

In that case, audio module was changed so the developer has been forced to rewrite entire audio output codes.

That's why there was a delay.
MX Player will be compatible with android 4.4.3 if there is no major changes in Internal Module.

ktsamy is correct. Even if the developer ( @bleu8888 ) were to force compatibility, it could potentially result in no audio at all for example.
Be sure to hit Thanks when someone helps you out!

In previous versions, most problem was from incompatibility of audio output module.
With the latest version of MX Player, the compatibility was improved. Therefore I hope it works without additional patch.

There is of course no way to say for sure but going by the details that were leaked this will be a minor update and certainly not a big overhaul.
I doubt android devs will have tampered with those modules again since quite a few apps rely on those and it's not worth breaking compatibility again unless they're having to make some major changes.

Google keeps on changing it's internal modules. That's why we are facing problems. Wait for the update.

Would you send system log using MX log collector after launching MX Player and getting "unsupported.." message?
4.4.3 is not yet available either on my device and Android emulator.
MX Log collector is available on Google play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...h.logcollector

-------- Update --------
I got upgrade myself. Please don't send log.
